    I have to admit, and maybe I'm just a gluton for punishment, that this blog didn't fire anyone up or even get a comment.

    Maybe I am blogging too much again. Who knows?

  • Maybe people are just getting burnt out from partisan arguments intended to fire people up. Just a thought.

    I like the idea. I can remember going through history class and learning about the Whigs and the Tories and the other parties throughout US history. The parties we currently enjoy have been with us for quite some time. I think though that with current events there will eventually be a third party that emerges although the exact makeup of it will be interesting to see.

    I don't fully disagree with that McCook. But this is not a partisan issue. Quite frankly neither party represents their base anymore. Both parties represent special interest and the highest bidder. That is why I believe that is time to either eliminate parties altogether or allow for more than just two parties on the national level.

    Will this ever happen? Not any time soon, unfortunately.

    Molly, the TEA Party is nothing new. It just has a new name. I do not believe that it will ever become a third party. The Republican Party has already made moves to incorporate parts of the party into its ranks.
